Cavity detection plays a vital role in dental examinations and yet not all can be detected through x-rays and the use of conventional instruments.
Through the use of DIAGNOdent, we can detect cavities in its early signs. A DIAGNOdent is a laser that detects cavities that form in the pits and fissures of the teeth. When the laser encounters a decay, it causes fluorescence. The larger the cavity detected, the more fluorescence it shows, and the louder the beeping noise will sound. DIAGNOdent will also show the health of each tooth. The higher the number, the more your tooth is at risk.
How DIAGNOdent Works
This process takes a few minutes and can save your time and money. DIAGNOdent procedure fee and time would largely depend on the cavity area. Oftentimes, we can fix these cavities the same day we examine them.
This procedure provides an accurate and revolutionary way to detect cavities that a visual examination of teeth won’t do. We can detect the smallest traces of tooth decay using this device.
Pickett Family Dental uses DIAGNOdent to catch cavities before they start to become a pain. Because of this treatment, we can maintain and prolong the natural structure of your teeth.
